Part B: How many packets of chocolate wafers and strawberry wafers did they buy? Explain how you got the answer and why you selected a particular method to get the answer. (5 points)
Part A:\[3x+y=30\]\[x+y=22\]Where x denotes the strawberry wafers and y the chocolate wafers.
For part B, there are numerous methods to solve this linear system. I'd subtract the second equation from the first equation :)
